During the quarter, the company continued to accelerate its evolution as a total beverage company, from testing new products locally to lifting and shifting successful brands globally

The Coca-Cola Company has continuously executed on its key strategies in the second quarter of 2018. While reported net revenues for the quarter declined due to refranchising, the company delivered strong organic revenue (non-GAAP) growth through balanced volume and price/mix, while gaining value share globally.

“We’re encouraged with our performance year-to-date as we continue our evolution as a consumer-centric, total beverage company,” said James Quincey, President and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company. “We have the right strategies in place and remain focused on achieving our full year guidance.”

The company is also driving an acceleration in the sparkling soft drinks category through investment and innovation, with five percent retail value growth in its sparkling portfolio during the quarter. These efforts, balanced with disciplined growth, have resulted in transaction growth of four percent year-to-date, outpacing unit case volume growth of three percent.
